Due to the miniaturisation trend in electronics, flexible circuits are gaining ground from rigid PCBs. Polyimide, PET, LCP or PEN based flexible circuits are manufactured in roll-to-roll format.
Elcoflex manufactures high volume single and double side flexible circuits. Elcoflex has also patented a copper circuit without polymer substrate. Multilayer circuits can be made using the copper layer and additional conductive polymer layers.
